Jacquard focus for Terrot in Istanbul

German circular knitting machine builder Terrot will be exhibiting at the forthcoming Texpo Eurasia 2014 in Istanbul together with its local partner Erko Sinai Ürünler Mümessillik Tic. A.Ş., where it will showcase a single jersey electronic jacquard machine model SCC548 34“ in gauge E8 as well as a double jersey electronic jacquard machine model UCC572 30“ in gauge E28.

The 31st International Textile, Weaving, Spinning, Finishing, Knitting, Hosiery Machines, Related Industries And Chemicals Fair, which takes place from 26-29 March, will host 1223 exhibitors this year and welcomed 39,256 professional visitors from 71 countries in 2013.

Terrot's Piezo selection system“After the great success of ITM Texpo Eurasia 2013 Exhibition, we are getting prepared for Texpo Eurasia 2014. Thanks to the influence of the incentives, the Turkish textile industrialists realise important technology investments. Thus Texpo Eurasia 2014 scheduled for 26 March- 29 March 2014 will be the most effective platform for machinery investment,” Terrot said in a statement on Friday.

The Terrot Jacquard machine series aims to set new standards by replacing the selection system with Piezo needle selection. Compared to magnet technology Piezo-technology is said to provide more process reliability and machine performance in daily production due to eight separate selection fingers for miss-tuck-knit on each feeder.

According to Terrot, considering minimal mechanical transmission ratios the needle selection is totally freely controllable in its 3-way-technique. The ceramic Piezo selection elements form an electro-mechanical interface which reliably implement the knitting information even with extremely fine machine gauges at high speeds, Terrot says.

The SCC548 on show in Istanbul will be a single jersey electronic jacquard machine with combination of 3-way-technique and coarse gauge E8 which Terrot says opens new trends in fashion.
